Do you have a specific store concept you’d like to bring to life?

Want to make sure your store has a good retail design?

Want to renovate your existing retail store?

You’d think retail stores might be on their way out, particularly after COVID. But no:

It’s been found 46% of people still prefer brick-and-mortar stores over shopping online. And 90% of those customers are likely to come back for more if their retail shopping experience was positive.

Give them a great experience and they’ll return. Turn them off, and you’ve lost them. That makes the design of a retail store even more important today than ever.

Good retail design has a huge impact on how customers understand, interact and buy from your brand.

That’s where award-winning retail interior designer Michael Bankes can help. Whether you have a specific store concept you’d like to bring to life or want to spruce up your current store, Michael can help you.

Build strong connections between your brand and your people

It’s important to create retail spaces that are convenient, comfortable and appealing to you, your customers, and your staff.

Although online shopping is great for convenience, options and low prices, people still love browsing, testing and choosing items. They love trying on shoes and clothes and chatting about their purchases at a local cafe. They enjoy face-to-face service. Not to mention the heady mix of aromas, music, and even window displays.

The layout and merchandising must be tailored to your store concept while considering people’s experience and movement within.

New retail design ideas implemented has a huge impact on how customers understand and interact with your product and brand.

Innovative and customer friendly retail spaces

Create innovative spaces that give your customer a wonderful, positive experience, that strengthens your brand. You’ll boost sales. And you may even open more commercial opportunities.
